4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup shortening
4 egg yolks
2 tbsp. lemon juice
8-10 tbsp. cold water
7 cups finely chopped peeled apples
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
Dash ground nutmeg
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 tbsp. milk
1 tbsp. lemon juice

In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk egg yolks, lemon juice and water; gradually add to flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide in half. Chill for 30 minutes. Roll out one portion of dough between two large sheets of waxed paper into a 17x12-in rectangle. Transfer to an ungreased 15x10x1 baking pan. Press pastry onto the bottom and up the sides of pan; trim pastry even with edge. In a large bowl, toss the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg; spread over crust. Roll out remaining pastry to fit tip of pan; place over filling. Trim edges; brush edges between pastry with water or milk; pinch to seal. Cut slits in top. Bake at 375 for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Combine glaze ingredients until smooth; drizzle over bars before cutting.
